12 Ways Job Hunting is Like Dating

I have an art degree, so the fact that I’ve spent more of my non-college adult life job hunting than actually working should surprise no one. In fact, the jobs I’ve had were all earned almost entirely with self-taught skills. The point is…I’m no stranger to unemployment, which means I’m no stranger to rejection in the professional world.

It comes as no surprise that with two Bay Area teams each competing in the championship rounds of their respective sports, the bandwagon witch-hunt is in full swing.
